No, auto_linklocal variable was not introduced.  The intention of gnn
was not changed.  When ipv6_enable="YES, net.inet6.ip6.auto_linklocal
is set to 1.

It seems there are more regressions.  I'm not tested actually, but
perhaps we cannot install FreeBSD via IPv6, now.  And, we cannot use
IPv6 in single user mode unless we set net.inet6.ip6.auto_linklocal to
1 explicitly.
